Summer Art Camp

About Summer Art Camp

Harwood Art Center, located in downtown Albuquerque, offers multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural summer art camp for youth entering grades 1-9. Since 1996, Harwood’s summer programing has fostered creativity and curiosity in young artists of all skill levels. We offer four two-week sessions throughout June and July with full and half day options.  

At Harwood Summer Art Camp, campers in grades 1 - 9 will immerse themselves in the arts with a group of inspired peers and accomplished instructors. They will experience a range of exciting activities in a positive, supportive atmosphere. From ceramics and painting, to theater and music, imaginations are unleashed. Summer Art Camp opens doors to new experiences and creative innovation, engaging students in the visual and performing arts. It is an adventure your children will remember for years to come!

Current Studio Artist

I was in Harwood’s very first show called Road To Chaos, organized by Jeff Kruger. My dog, Micro, was also in that show eating 30 hot dogs in a performance piece by Bryan Konefsky. I am back in a studio at Harwood for the second time after 4 years. This time I’m using the studio to do serigraphy with my collaborative friend Tom Loeb. Last time I used the studio to make sculpture. Harwood has given me many opportunities to show my own art and curate shows about the work my community, Albuquerque makes.  My dog Pablo and I are in and out of Harwood’s doors a lot because I now live in the neighborhood.
